A Face Lift Can Turn Back the Hands of Time


How a Face Lift Can Turn Back the Hands of Time

If you’re frustrated by signs of aging in the face, it can be all too easy to assume that the effects of time are irreversible. However, with the facelift procedure, it’s possible to turn back time by restoring a youthful appearance of the face. This popular and time-tested cosmetic procedure can help you achieve your cosmetic goals and overcome signs of aging. 

What Exactly is a Face lift?

A facelift is an elective surgical procedure that rejuvenates the face and neck area. Technically referred to as rhytidectomy, this procedure has been performed for many decades and is one of the most effective methods for achieving a tighter, smoother, and more lifted face. 

What Does the Face lift Procedure Involve?

During a facelift procedure, your plastic surgeon can remove excess skin, tighten the muscle and skin tissues, smooth the skin of the face and neck, and eliminate jowls or a double chin. The procedure is performed with general anesthesia.

There are multiple surgical methods for a facelift. Generally, the incisions start near the temples, then run down in front of the ears to the lower scalp. After the incision is made, your surgeon will separate the skin from the underlying tissue, then reposition the muscles and tissues as needed to rejuvenate the face. Excess fat deposits beneath the skin may be removed with liposuction. Once these steps have been completed, your surgeon will stretch the skin so that it’s firm and smooth, then remove any excess skin. At this point, the incisions can be closed with fine sutures to prevent significant scarring. 

Consider a Facelift To Regain a Youthful Look

If you’re a healthy individual who would like to reverse visible signs of aging on the face, you may be an excellent candidate for the face lift procedure. Dr. Mosiello at Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery can evaluate your cosmetic goals and determine if this procedure is right for you. Contact us to schedule an appointment today!

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
